Subject: Madoff Card Removed From Allen and Ginter

Madoff Card Removed From Allen and Ginter

Topps announces that it is removing Bernie Madoff from its "World's Biggest Hoaxes, Hoodwinks and Bamboozles" insert from 2009 Allen & Ginter Baseball to comply with a request made by Major League Baseball. The card will be replaced with a subject to be named later.
